We visited Nancy Hands several times during our stay in Dublin (we were staying in an AirBnB on the same block with the same owner). Great food, great drinks, and great service. The atmosphere is cozy and wonderful, as well!

The atmosphere is great! Great food/service! The decor is what you imagine an Irish pub to be...beautiful woodwork and stained glass!

First night on bus tour was spent here. Food samples and Guinness and hard cider samples. I am not a drinker but I loved the cider. Good food samples. Beautiful building with lots of history

This is a larger than expected bar and restaurant. There are plenty of menu choices but your friends will be telling you that a true Irish experience requires drinking Guinness and Irish Whiskey. Service is prompt.Menu items are a bit pricey.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night. Live Irish music in the small bar. Was very enjoyable and people were friendly. Went in on the Sunday and had a roast dinner. The beef was superb. Nice thick sauce with red wine gravy.

Had returned late from a day tour that started very early. Was hungry and had the mussels here with beer - were fantastic!! The mussels were better than those I had in Bruxelles in fact. Would recommend.

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.

I assume you mean the pub. Being in Dublin, not much is air conditioned - not needed in a cool climate. But while we were at Nancy Hands we saw no indication of AC
